In 2006, i started becoming allergic to many foods and also started losing weight.
I went to the doctor who then did many routine tests, and found nothing out of the norm.
I was frustrated but hoped it would go away.
It didn't, and in fact became much worse as all i was able to eat without swelling itching or diarrhea was rice, potato, vegetables, organic chicken, eggs and small fish-on rare occasion.
I started looking elsewhere for an answer because i was not seeming to absorb the nutrients from my food and was hungry although i was eating constantly.
On the suggestion of a medical friend i had a heavy metals testing done and was off the chart with mercury toxicity!!! in doing research i found over and over that mercury does damage to the intestinal tract and causes or contributes to leaky gut syndrome.
I have been taking medical nutritional supplements to help heal my gut and am now gaining weight.
I had gotten down.
I had a mouth full of dental amalgams which have now been removed.
I now must find a way with my toxic body to safely chelate it.
Other countries have banned the use of amalgams because of studies done, why hasn't america?.
